Overview:

Knapp Community Care Foundation was established in November 2012, and since its inception has created a mission of serving the Mid-Valley community through supporting organizations that promote the improvement of health in Mid-Valley families.

The Mission of Knapp Community Care Foundation is to improve the health of Mid-Valley families.

Community Care means:

  • Finding ways to help Mid-Valley communities in the Rio Grande Valley – deep South Texas, improve access to healthcare, wellness, nutritional services and education.
  • Increasing and improving quality healthcare access and nutritional education for low income, uninsured or medically underserved populations in the Mid-Valley.
  • Identifying promising programs to provide improved wellness, fitness, preventative healthcare and health education access .
  • Supporting successful healthcare, educational, wellness programs already serving low income and uninsured families.

KCCF is ethically and legally bound to grant a minimum of five percent of our asset base in the grants process. The goal is to fund health and health related programs and/or services that positively impact the designated service delivery area.

Knapp Community Care Foundation’s (KCCF) grant application process begins with a Letter of Intent (LOI) to determine whether your organization is aligned with the Foundation’s interests and mission.
